Bali volcano: 150,000 people to evacuate erupting Mt Agung, airport closes for another day

(Worthy News) – About 150,000 people will leave their homes on the slopes of Mount Agung, Bali’s Governor says, as the volcano’s eruptions grow more powerful, while the island’s main airport will close for another 24 hours due to ashfall.

Governor Made Pastika said the evacuation period for people living within 10 kilometres of the crater could easily last as long as a month.

Indonesia’s disaster management agency said the evacuation is so far orderly and without panic. [ Source: ABC News (Read More…) ]
